Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition review

Vlad Bobleanta, 22 October 2018.


Few brands say exclusivity, high performance, and stunning looks quite like Italian car maker Lamborghini. So when you hear of the Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition, you know it's no ordinary smartphone.

Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition review

That's even if you aren't remotely familiar with the vanilla Find X, which is already pretty unique before the Lambo-inspired changes. After all, how many smartphones exist with a motorized pop-up section housing the cameras?

Anyway, the Lamborghini Edition adds to that a slick black carbon-fiber back, in true super car fashion, plus a black UI theme with golden accents.

It's not just on the surface that the Find X has been Lamborghini-fied, however - it's got a smaller battery so you might think it's gotten the Superleggera treatment, making it lighter. Not really - it weighs the same as the regular Find X, but the 10-ish percent reduction in capacity has been the result of having to fit the bits enabling SuperVOOC fast charging. And with Lamborghini in the name, you'd be correct to assume it's not just plain fast, it's bonkers fast.

With its 512GB on board the Lambo Find X has more storage than you'd need - so unlike the Centenario, even if we do fancy its custom luggage. The handset lacks the option to extend that via a card slot - as if you'd put a cargo box on said Centenario's roof. The Snapdragon 845 is the metaphorical V12 under the hood, and there's 8GB of RAM for your multitasking needs - sorry, we couldn't think of a clever analogy for that (as if the rest of them were any clever).

This handy list below will save us from further embarrassment while also showing you the Find X Lamborghini Edition's key specs. Spoiler: a lot of them are the same as on the non-Lambo Find X.

If it has Android One OS with custom icons (including color) that would be great.
